Sesame/CBeebies show The Furchester Hotel coming to Netflix

The Seasame Workshop/CBeebies co-production will begin streaming on Netlfix in multiple territories

The Furchester Hotel, the award-winning pre-school show, is now available for streaming on Netflix in multiple territories.

The live-action Sesame Workshop and CBeebies co-production originally aired on CBeebies and will have 26 x 11-minute episodes.

The show introduces a new cast of muppet characters, The Furchester family, as well familiar faces in the form of Cookie Monster and Elmo. A multicultural, multilingual, multi-feathered-and-fuzzy clientele with often unusual demands means the Furchesters face unique challenges in every episode.

“We are excited to have The Furchester Hotel stream on Netflix, which reaches over 93 million members around the world,” said Scott Chambers, senior vice president, North America Media and Licensing of Sesame Workshop.

“What makes the series so much fun is the colorful cast of characters who bend over backwards, forwards, and sideways, only occasionally tipping over, to be sure that the needs of every guest are met.  Viewers will love having adventures with Elmo and Cookie Monster, along with their new friends Phoebe, Funella, and Furgus.”
